Timeline

The first indication of an invasion occurred April Fool's Day 2012, with players encountering four-shadowed mimes.

At the end of the Brushfires event (June 2012), players could obtain an eerily silent box which would interact with any mime soul fragments they had.

On October 24, 2012, an announcement declared "Strange things are afoot." Now players could use their eerily silent box to obtain a soul monocle at the cost of a mime soul fragment. And every 35-40 adventures, players encountered Behind the world there is a door..., leading to Behind the door there is a fog. Doors stopped appearing on November 2, 2012.

On October 31, 2012 (Halloween XL), Trick or Treating with a soul mask led to A Silent Mime, which dropped a silent beret. This appears to be a one-time encounter.

On November 15, 2012, a trivial update announced: "Those of you still messing with the mime soul forge can now create multiple items in a single visit."

On October 31, 2014 (Halloween XLVIII), some trick-or-treaters (with oddly shaped heads) were seen wandering the Kingdom. Defeating them with a soul knife revealed that these unusually quiet children are actually mimes in disguise, as they drop a mimeplasm upon defeat.

Behind the door

Behind the door there is a fog initially gave just one choice, which revealed a fragment of a message. Once the full message was received and its instructions were followed, the fragments of text changed color, indicating a new message. These were deciphered by community spading efforts to be:

Text fragments received by players were 3 characters long, with spaces replaced by ...; with a soul monocle equipped, fragments were 5 characters long.

Each completed task also unlocked a new choice in Behind the door there is a fog.
